Storyline

The Stooges take care of a house while their friend is getting married. Their friend wants them to get a TV and have an antenna installed on the house. The Stooges have a great idea. They decide to install the TV themselves and save the money for a wedding present. Shemp keeps on slipping on soap and having his head dunked in a bucket of water while cleaning the house. Larry totally wrecks the wall by setting it on fire and turning it into swiss cheese with a hammer. Shemp takes apart the TV and while installing the antenna, falls and breaks it. The friend comes back, married, and when his fat wife sees the house, she leaves him. Written by Patrick Lin <pjustinl@worldnet.att.net>

hilarious!!!
18 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest Stooge shorts! Moe, Larry, and Shemp try to prepare a house for a friend and his wife, who will be moving in soon. As usual, the stooges wreck everything, and everything backfires on them. The gags on this short seem to work even better than they do on other shorts! You'll crack up while watching it!
